UPDATE – Community members are now invited to signup for vaccines through this event. To sign up for a shot, please use this vaccination registration link. Enter the name of the person receiving the vaccine under the child’s name fields.

Dearborn students age 12 and older and their parents are being offered another opportunity to receive the Pfizer COVID vaccine through the district.

The Detroit Medical Center will offer vaccinations at Salina Intermediate, 2623 Salina St., on Wednesday, May 26 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The second shot will be offered at the school on June 16. 

Parents should watch their email for the link to sign up for the vaccinations.  After parents sign up, DMC staff will call to set up a specific time.

Children must be at least 12 years old by the vaccination date and anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian with them when they come for the vaccination. Parents and guardians are also allowed to register for a vaccination at this clinic.

We realize there continues to be interest in the Pfizer vaccine for our families. All 400 appointments for first doses of the vaccine at this week’s EFHS clinic filled up within a few days.

Although the district understands parents have a personal choice when it comes to the wellbeing of their child, the district strongly feels that all methods to slow the spread of COVID 19, including vaccinations, are the best way to promote overall health and safety in our community and the surest path to a return to in-person learning for all students.

Families are encouraged to get vaccinations wherever they are available. 

If you have questions, please contact the Superintendent’s office at (313) 827-3020.
